Here’s a screenshot of a game I’ve been playing, called Rome: Total War:

Setting pigs on fire and letting them run, hopefully at the enemy, was a tactic used to instill fear and to break tight formation, especially calvary, thus causing chaos and possibly tipping the scales of the battle. It was also highly effective against war elephants, which armies in Egypt used to trample soldiers to death. This game is very addictive, realistic, and requires endless amount of strategy to win. I’ve been playing this one for weeks, and don’t see myself getting bored of it anytime soon.
